Dapper Reindeer Gift Tag

I love the Simon Says Stamp Picture Book Reindeer – he really is a cutie. I featured this guy on a Christmas gift tag last year, and you can see that tag below too.

I cut out the tags from red cardstock, and the trees from green. PLEASE NOTE: The Hero Arts Paper Layering Pine Tree used here is discontinued, but I have linked a similar shaped tree below.

I coloured the trees using Copic Markers, flicking the colour from dark to light to give the tree some depth and texture. I then cut them all in half, straight down the middle.

Copics used for the Trees: G29, G09, G05.

I lined up the straight edge of the trees onto the edge of the tag, and heat embossed the sentiments in place. You can see I am using both halves of the tree, so no waste of any of my colouring efforts!

I gold heat embossed the little sentiments on either side of the tag, just to the side of the lower part of the tree.

I also liberally sprayed the tag with Gold Shimmer spray.

I cut and coloured the reindeer one at a time. One of the features of the Picture Book dies is that they cut all the pieces at once, although the antlers are a separate piece in this case.

Copics used for the Reindeer: R59, R57, R55, R30, R20.

The banner is from an older My Favorite Things Tag set, and I cut and glued the folds together and stamped the To & From on them. I used the banner as a guide for placement of the first part of the reindeer body and built him up from there in the centre of the tag. Once the reindeer was glued down, the banner was fixed in place right at the bottom.

I added black glaze pen to the eyes and nose details, along with Nuvo Ivory drops to the tree for beautiful baubles. I thought he looked a little underdressed, and the scarf in the reindeer die set wasn’t working for me (we have summertime Christmases here in New Zealand), so I found some tartan patterned paper and created a little bow tie.

The Picture Book Reindeer was featured on one of my gift tags last year too.

The tag is a Concord & 9th gift tag from the Sprinkles Turnabout set, cut from same red cardstock. The reindeer is also coloured with Copics and built the same way from the bottom of the tag. The little snowflakes (CZ Design) are white heat embossed to make a hand stamped background.

The Ho Ho Ho sentiment is from an old Stampin’ Up! set.
